Energy Performance Certificates


The EPC looks broadly similar to the energy labels now provided with vehicles and many household appliances. The certificate will provide an energy rating of the building from A to G, where A is very efficient and G is the least efficient. The better the rating, the more efficient the building is and the lower the fuel bills are likely to be.

All EPC’s come with a recommendation report, which provides advice on how to use the building more effectively, cost effective improvements to the building and other more expensive improvements which could enhance the building’s energy performance.

Potential buyers and tenants may consider the energy efficiency of the building as part of their investment or business decision to buy or occupy that building
